a pay increase to d.e.a. agents on the borders, to the c.i.a. agents who track down osama bin laden. this is a rotten, rotten thing to do. for what? to score some political -- cheap political points. i'm a little confused. my friend from georgia says it's really not a cut. we are not reducing the deficit at all. the gentleman from texas said we need to save the american taxpayers money. the bottom line is that this is a cheap political stunt. and the victims here are working people. none of us should be surprised because this is the republican kind of signature issue. go after working people. you want to find ways to balance the budget? punish working people. you want to find this or that? go after working people. enough. enough of this war against working families in this country. mr. speaker, what is also really frustrating is that here we are debating a bill that's really going nowhere, that's about a press release. my republicans are going to go on vacation tomorrow. we are not going to be back for a week. then we'll have four legislative days left to deal with this thing called
